Govt spox slams NYT, The Guardian on Hungary coverage

December 6th, 2018

In an ironically worded entry on the website, Zoltan Kovacs, the state secretary for international communication and relations at the Prime Minister's Office, slammed coverage of recent Hungarian events in English-speaking left-leaning media outlets. Kovacs wrote that at The New York Times, "the editors and publishers ... are hot and bothered about the [Hungarian] prime minister’s 'right-wing, nativist, nationalist politics.' They’re so woke." He added that this week, "the Manhattan clique is joined ... by a columnist at The Guardian, a former professor at CEU by coincidence, who mourns the sad day when the CEU was forced out of Hungary," referring to the Central European University's announcement to relocate its US-accredited courses to Vienna. "Except it wasn't," Kovacs said, and goes on to say that the Kozep-Europai Egyetem, the part of CEU that is fully accredited in Hungary, continues to operate in Budapest.
